1933 Recipe for Virginia Fruit Cream Tarts


This is also from the 1933 Jelke Good Luck Oleomargarine book Ernestine sent me. The recipe for the little tarts does not look too hard at all but does require finding tart shells and figuring out the scant directions a bit. It reminds me of the vague recipes my Grandma Curtin left.

Virginia Fruit Cream Tarts
3 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tablespoons flour
1 3/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons Jelke Good Luck Margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
8 baked tart shells (??? Maybe you can find something close.)
2 cups sweetened fresh fruit
1/2 cup whipped cream

Combine egg yolks, sugar, flour, milk and Good Luck Margarine in top of a double boiler and cook until thick.  Flavor, chill, and fill baked tart shells one-half full.  Cover with fresh fruit and top with whipped cream.

Home again with the little guy - he's supposed to stay in and 'quiet' all week, as his cough got worse yesterday. More Dora...

Tart shells are pretty much just pie crusts. Small pie crusts.
